2. History

The area was named Psarofai in the years after the Greek Revolution of 1821. The area consisted of olive groves and vineyards, belonging to the land owner Psarofagi Intzirka. However, several other origins of the name have been suggested. Before 1960, when urban development of the area started, it was full of orchards. Its new residents mainly came from the area of Tritaia. The torrent Diakoniaris flows through Psarofai, and has often flooded the area.
